Transform your clay creation into a wax candle in three simple steps.
Our new kit gives you the creative freedom to cast wax candles of any shape using a silicone mould of your clay creation. Create intricate designs and pieces in clay which can be perfectly recreated in wax. The kit includes all materials, tools and guidance you’ll need to get started creating beautiful wax candle castings.
How it works:
Step 1: Create your piece in clay
This kit comes with 650g of our smooth and supple air drying clay for you to sculpt any clay creation you'd like to cast in wax.
Step 2: Mould your piece with silicone
Using our fast-activating silicone (from liquid to a solid mould in just 1hr), create an exact mould of your clay creation.
Step 3: Cast your wax candle
Melt and pour your soy wax into your new silicone mould, pop in a wick and leave it to set overnight. Peel back the silicone to reveal your completely hand-cast candle sculpture.

Candle Casting Kit Tips
Size - It’s important that your clay piece fits inside one of the sizes of moulding cup provided, so bear this in mind when creating your piece!
Surface - the smoother the surface of your clay creation, the smoother and shinier your candle will be, so focus on removing any of those cracks, creases, lumps and bumps to get the best results.
Finishing - part of the beauty of creating beautiful candles and sculptures in wax is how easy it is to touch up, smooth over and adjust your piece even after it sets. A little melted wax can be used to plug holes and sharp knife can be used to add the final details.
